Inside Page

Dinosaurs have always been quite popular. Whether you are an adult or a child, even if you don’t understand much about dinosaurs, you must know the term “dinosaur.” Maybe it’s because dinosaurs have lived on Earth for too long, about 165 million years, or their wide distribution range with footprints all over every continent, or their peculiar appearance: some dinosaurs had a colossal body beyond our imagine, some had towering bone plates on their backs, some had wings and could fly, and some had webbed feet and could swim in water… Dinosaurs are such a group of mysterious creatures, which have attracted countless people to explore and study for hundreds of years. PNSO Super Lift-the-Flap: Dinosaurs will lead you to explore the life evolution of dinosaurs, so that you can more directly feel the dinosaur world hundreds of millions of years ago and the brilliance created by the inhabitants-dinosaurs of this word.


All works in this series come from the research results of “Darwin: An Art Project of Life Science” of “PNSO’s Scientific Art Projects Plan: Stories on Earth.” Mr. ZHAO Chuang, PNSO’s scientific artist, strictly follows available scientific evidence throughout his creation, by building his artistic framework based on fossils and scientific data. He restored skeletons, models, and ecological environments from fossils, to make these both scientifically rigorous and artistically creative. Based on the latest dinosaur research, Ms. YANG Yang, the science writer for children, vividly introduces 84 mysterious dinosaurs and their neighbors, such as Confuciusornis, Microraptor, Repenomamus, Tyrannosaurus rex, Angustinaripterus, Szechuanosaurus, Sinraptor, Lufengosaurus and so on, which intuitively and elaborately presents the morphology of these ancient animals and takes you through a journey of scientific and artistic experience about ancient animals.
